According to a recent report, Audi is developing a new model which could be called the A4 Sportback, A4 Avantissimo or A4 Superavant.

Little is known about the car, but it will reportedly be an MPV that is based on the next-generation A4. It would be larger than the A4 Avant and have a high roofline as well as an extended wheelbase. To help distinguish the model from the rest of the lineup, it could feature unique styling by Italdesign.

Engine options are rumored to include a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol with 255 hp (190 kW / 259 PS) and a 2.0-liter TDI that develops 197 hp (147 kW / 200 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.

If everything pans out, a concept could be introduced in 2014 with a production model following in 2016.
